Colrain After 25 Years: Looking Back and Looking Forward
November 16-18, 2018N/A
Colrain WTR is organizing a great weekend program to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Colrain War Tax Resistance Action (that happened around the former home of Randy Kehler and Betsy Corner).
The gathering will be on Woolman Hill in Deerfield on Nov 16-18, 2018. Participants need to register (see link below).
Frida Berrigan and others will be there on Friday evening to present info on current military funding. There will be panels and small group time for reflection on how the action affected us and our lives personally, how it affected the movement, the way we organized and dealt with conflicts and challenges, and what lessons might be relevant today going forward. We will also have a time for remembering those who have died during the intervening years (like Wally & Nita Nelson and others). Terry Franklin (who moved into the house with her family during the action) also plans to join us and share from her perspective.
